Barcelona midfielder Seydou Keita admits he is flattered to be linked with a summer switch to Liverpool.

The 32-year-old Mali international is currently under contract at Camp Nou until 2014, but recent speculation has suggested the player is attracting interest from Anfield.

Kenny Dalglish has already spent big over the past 12 months as he looks to overhaul Liverpool's playing squad in a bid to return the club to former glories, and could be planning an end of season raid on the Catalan giants.

Keita has found his first-team action at Barcelona limited this campaign with an increase in competition for places in Pep Guardiola's side, and admits it could be time for a new challenge as he enters the twilight of his career.

"I am flattered by the interest of Liverpool Football Club, one of the biggest clubs in the world," he told "However, let's wait until the end of the season with Barcelona and see what happens."

Keita considers Liverpool to be one of the few clubs that could match his ambition, but he is keen to point out that no switch to the Premier League has yet been agreed.

"I love Barcelona and it is difficult to find a better team than them," he added. "But I am ambitious and want to play football week in, week out.

"A challenge somewhere else is attractive to me and Liverpool are a top team with very good players."
